Qatar Airways has signed a codeshare agreement
with Bulgaria Air, with the first flights scheduled to operate
from 2 March.
The agreement will provide Bulgaria Air passengers
with a seamless connection to destinations in Africa, Asia and the
Middle East. Qatar Airways’ passengers will benefit from access to
two new destinations in Bulgaria: Varna and Burgas.
Bulgaria Air Chief Executive Officer, Hristo
Todorov, said, “It is a great pleasure for Bulgaria Air to add
Qatar Airways to its partnership network, which is undoubtedly one
of the most respected and prestigious airlines in the world. We
are delighted that they have chosen us as a partner enabling our
passengers to travel quickly and conveniently to over 170
destinations with Qatar Airways. This cooperation is only a part
of our long-term development strategy and we are happy to welcome
the passengers of Qatar Airways onboard our aircraft.”
Qatar Airways first launched services to Sofia,
Bulgaria on 22 September 2011 beginning with four flights per week. In the years since, due to the strong demand by
travellers, the service has grown to 14 flights per week.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr.
Akbar Al Baker, said, “This agreement with Bulgaria
Air follows other recent partnership announcements we have made
with airlines across the world, demonstrating our commitment to
working with our peers to provide passengers seamless connectivity
and unrivalled service.”
